Have a donut - I can't.
June 7 is National Doughnut Day. Whether you're partial to the cream-filled, glazed, jelly or chocolate varieties, the doughnut is something near and dear to so many of us.
The Salvation Army established this sweet holiday in 1938 to raise funds during the Great Depression and honor the "lassies," as they called the female volunteers, who supported the soldiers on the front lines during World War I, serving them delicious meals, and of course, doughnuts. Approximately 250 "lassies" provided assistance to American soldiers in France in 1917.
Fast forward to 2013 and many national chains and smaller shops are offering free doughnuts to celebrate.
Krispy Kreme will be giving away a free doughnut of any variety to every customer at participating locations.www.krispykreme.com/
I have been on a diet and I have lost 14 pounds so I can't have a donut but someone out there have a sweet for me. I do miss sweets and chocolate.
The diet I am on is The Fast Metabolism Diet by Haylie Pomroy, she was on Dr. Oz. It really works and you get lots of food.
